      I'm going back and forth on buying the 4k(500nits) vs WQHD(300nits) display. Is 300 nits good enough if your using it in a car, by a window, or outside?

      Is this also available in silver? I can not find it in stores in silver, and what about the webcam?

          Lew, hey!
          Could you do a review on the Tuf 505 du EB74 . I will need a more professional opinion, which is by the way what they say, A gamer laptop with a military grade enforcement.

            Hey can you do a review with the Thinkpad P53 vs the P52.I would
            like to see how they perform and if it is worth the new one with the 9th
            and the new wifi. I mainly use it for virtual machines, heavy
            networking programs etc. I know the battery change and I want to know if
            it is a big deal to change in the future.Thanks

                        I’ve always wondered who the thinkpad is marketed/made for. What’s the advantage of one of these, compared to like the more “flashy”Lenovo yoga c930 or
                        920, or even the hp spectre x360? Is it more for editing?

                              Keyboard gets better as you use it. Also the Track point gets better if you wiggle it with wide movements around to its limits a few times.

I been searching for answers for 3 hours on internet and I cannot seem to find it. I just want a plain black top instead of that hideous looking ugly strattified bedminton racket waffle machine thing on my sexy baby. If anyone has an FHD model, please let me kno how the top looks!

                                                                                TLDL -- The computer is great but the company Lenovo has the most horrible customer support i have ever experienced. My story below.

                                                                                Lenovo complaint Started writing 08/13/19

                                                                                I purchased a nearly $2,000 Legion laptop from Lenovo about one year ago. The buying process was annoying and it took nearly 10 weeks to arrive. As opposed to the 2 weeks they advertised.

                                                                                Earlier this week (08/12/2019) I called Lenovo customer support because my laptop was freezing when I would right click the desktop screen. This was right after I had factory reset the PC.

                                                                                I was transferred twice while on the phone, but still needed to give up the same info with each transfer, name phone and address. the third person I spoke to, told me there was nothing they could do because Factory Reset is usually their last ditch effort.

                                                                                Some hardware was the issue and it needed to be replaced. I told him my RAM was acting weird as well, the computer recognized it as installed but would never go over 8gb. I never once in the whole year noticed my RAM go above 8gb even though 16 was installed. BTW I make videos for YouTube, so believe me I was stressing this computer out to it’s max.

                                                                                I was told I may need a new motherboard and maybe need new RAM. I paid for the maximum warranty protection where they send a technician to your house to repair it. Turns out they are full of s**t. It is supposed to be same day, or at least that is what they will tell you when you are buying it. Well I guess I got lucky because he said 3-5 days and the repairman came the next day. He called in the morning saying he would be in before 2pm. He arrived at 4:15 of course.

                                                                                And he arrives with a new SSD and asking me where the flash drive is that Lenovo sent me with Windows 10 on it…. What? What flash drive and why do you have an SSD? Well his orders were that only the SSD needed replacing. We spoke for a few minutes, I wouldn't let him replace my working SSD with a blank one. After convincing him to go check his car it turns out he did have a motherboard for me, but no RAM. He proceeded to open the laptop and breaks a piece off of the plastic under the keyboard. The piece that broke off fell into the computer and I had to retrieve it and show it to him, he hadn't noticed.

                                                                                Once he noticed he told me he needs to order a new case for the laptop because the piece that broke included a screw hole. And that since he didn’t have the RAM he should order the case and the RAM and return in a few days and do all the replacements all at once. He said he knows nothing about what is going on inside the computer or my specific case, he said they just give him a part and send him out into the world to replace that part, nothing else. The repair man didn’t seem to have any idea how to open the computer and when I spoke to him about it he had no idea what was inside the computer. He even took the metal heat shield off and forgot to put it back into the computer, he had to take it apart again. Insanely unprofessional.

                                                                                I am about to call Lenovo customer support again and report this situation, I believe there is a 99% chance they will either not care and do nothing, or insist that I “send in” the laptop. Considering the fact that I have already lost 3 days of working time and it will be a full week once the guy gets back, I am not sending it in. Furthermore I don’t trust Lenovo as far as I can spit anymore. I don’t trust them to not send me back an even more defective piece of technology or even the exact same laptop. Wish me luck.


                                                                                Get through to customer service and the lady who answered the phone refuses to transfer me to her supervisor until I give over personal details. Name and phone number given now on hold.

                                                                                10 minutes.

                                                                                15 minutes.

                                                                                “Transferred” to supervisor

                                                                                On Hold Again.

                                                                                10 minutes.

                                                                                20 minutes. :( smh

                                                                                30 minutes….. not sure if I have the patience for this.

                                                                                37 minutes they hung up on me….

                                                                                Called them back but they hung up on me again immediately. Trying again.

                                                                                Service rep named Natalie answered. I asked for supervisor again, gave my info again. On hold again

                                                                                10 minutes.

                                                                                Transferring to supervisor now. On hold.

                                                                                Connected to Chris the supervisor. Very nice and calm man. He is not sure what is wrong with my laptop but genuinely seems interested in correcting for the bad experience I have had thus far. We spoke about replacement parts, I told him I didn’t like the idea of having my currently laptop with half of the components replaced and that I didn’t have much trust left in that laptop. I asked him about a replacement and clarified with him that it would be a brand new comp from the factory and not a refurb. He said they no longer have my Y720 model in stock and so would like to offer me a newer model either a Y730 or Y740. on hold again.

                                                                                Chris is back, he gave me my case number and verified my email. He will email me a list of Lenovo Legion model laptops to choose a replacement from. He said to expect that email within 24 hours.

                                                                                =UPDATE= 08/14/19

                                                                                24 hours later. Ironically I got an email very soon after speaking with Chris, telling me that I can expect to get the email Chris spoke about within “one business day”. So. No email.

                                                                                Calling Lenovo. Holding, intermediate people, repetitive information giving.

                                                                                Human on the line named Sheri. I ask her if I can speak to the supervisor named Chris. She asks me what for? I tell her “I just gave you my case number, isnt the information there?” She says the last thing written down was that I was scheduled to have a technician come by my house a few days ago….. No record of Chris, his email, or anything about the technician breaking my laptop….. I am heart broken but cant say I am surprised. I was so ready for good news when I spoke to Chris the other day.

                                                                                Turns out Chris is one leave, not in the office. Terns out not a single supervisor is in the office according to Sheri. She puts me on hold.

                                                                                15 minutes. Comes back. Says “since there is no record of what Chris told you, you would have to speak to him”. So I am making this up? I am put on hold again

                                                                                Not sure how long, pacing around. She tells me at what time the next day Chris will arrive at work, and that I should call back then. 3… days…. in…. a…. row…..

                                                                                I remain calm and patient. I ask her if it is possible for Chris to call me tomorrow so that I can get past all the holding nonsense. She says Chris will call me at 9am. So lets see if he remembers the conversation. End of call.

                                                                                Something else I just remembered now while typing this, I turned on my Microphone while I was on hold for Chris. I have our entire conversation recorded in poor but understandable quality. I also have the email confirming that I would get Chris’s email within 24 hours and that email also included an apology from Lenovo. “Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience you've encountered, and a sincere Thank You for your continued patience.” lets see if they meant this apology.


                                                                                The next morning. 10am. No call.

                                                                                11:30. I am calling them now. Lol no way this call is being used for QA purposes.

                                                                                Got a human on the line. I ask him to transfer me to Chris, he insists that he can help me with the case and does not need to transfer me. I insist 3 or 4 times and now I am on hold waiting for him to try to connect me with Chris. Speaking with Brian from hardware warranty support. He says Chris is in a different area and he cannot transfer me over to him because he has no way to do so. Idk how that can be. Brian also began reading my case. Once AGAIN the case was not updated and the most recent thing it has on it is that I am waiting for a technician to replace the motherboard. Unimaginable how horrible this customer support is. I mean this is what nearly $2k gets you? Not to mention I bought the highest level warranty they sell. An extra $200 bucks! And this is what that buys me!?

                                                                                On hold for Brian’s supervisor. Cant wait to hear more empty words.

                                                                                20 minutes

                                                                                On with supervisor John now. He understands some of the situation. Basically what I just told Brian. On hold again.

                                                                                He is back. Tells me that he has no power to make anything happen with my computer replacement. He looks up my restitution number and tells me that it is still being considered by corporate. Whatever that means. He says he will try to find Chris for me. On hold again.

                                                                                10 minutes

                                                                                John comes back. Tells me he is transferring me to corporate. Back to waiting.

                                                                                10 minutes. Just took a crap while on hold.

                                                                                Brian is back. Saying “Ashley” from corporate would call me.

                                                                                8 minutes

                                                                                Rosemary Campbell from Customer Care just picked up. Tells me corporate is as high as the customer service goes. Tells me that ashley is handling the case now.

                                                                                Rosemary sends me an email showing a Legion Y740 17” Black 81Uj0000US is the part number. She says “please review the below replacement specifications. The replacement below is brand new. The remaining warranty from your original unit will transfer to the new replacement with an additional 90 days added.”

                                                                                I email her back saying great send it and ill send back the old one.

                                                                                About 4 hours go by

                                                                                I get a call from Ashley, the next in the line of people trying their best to do nothing for me. She tells me that Rosemary’s email and the things Chris told me were misleading. Since neither of those people has the authority to replace my computer…. and that “according to our rules and regulations” my computer may have to be sent in for repairs. O and btw she read my case just now and the ONLY thing it said was "extremely dissatisfied" ..... nothing! none of what i have gone through this week is in my case.... She said she wont know until Monday. Today is Thursday. I feel helpless, they genuinely do not care at all. DO NOT BUY LENOVO!! Do NOT give them money!
